This time, I'm doing something different. I'm known for comparing Sabbats to Jewish rites of passage. I find that useful because the Jewish rites of passage parallel the Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year very nicely. Not only that, it's a system of rites that most of us know about, at least slightly. But this time, I've chosen to compare Beltane to the starting grid of a world-class auto race like Le Mans or the Indianapolis 500.
Preparation is done, and when the wedding takes place, like when the flag drops, the real journey begins. And there's something at the starting grid to be learned and applied at Mabon.
